Re: Express bed boards

For now I plan on leaving finish as is. Regarding screws - I tried the #12 screw and head was way to small. Picked up #14 and #16 screws today and size 16 seams to be the right size.

Re: Express bed boards

Putting bed wood in and I need some wood screws for a couple of spots in the bed strips that go into the wood rail. Does anyone know the modern equivalent size of these screws? As most of the wood had rotted away on bed I was able to salvage almost all original bolts with exception of these screws. ...

Re: Express bed boards

I drove truck today at 50 mph for 11 miles. I measured temperatures on worm drive immediately after stopping. Front worm bearing measured on outside of case was 159 degrees f. Rear worm bearing area was 180 degrees f. Is this too warm/hot?

Worm gear temperature

I drove my Expess truck 11 miles at 50 mph and when I got home I used my thermal imaging gun to read temperatures. Two things I was concerned about was the worm drive rear bearing and engine sleeves. The worm drive front bearing as measured on the case was 159 degrees. The rear bearing was 180 degre...

Re: Express bed boards

Thanks Neil - did not realize this had wood support in it. You don’t have any additional bolts for the mounting hardware - 1/2 - 13 x3 3/8?

Express bed boards

I have cut my bed boards 7 3/16 wide. I now need to cut groves for bed strips. Question - how far from the board edge is the grove. How wide and deep is the grove?

Re: Speed and the AA

Not sure yet. My 4th of July goal is going to be hard to make. I rebuilt all brakes with new linings all the way around. I need to pull rear hubs back off yo install some shims on axle. Currently the end of the ankle sticks out to far to let hub caps go on. I will be working on express bed over next...

Re: Speed and the AA

My 29 truck has high speed rear and Warford overdrive. I did a touring motor also with bigger intake valves, Snyder 6.1 head, and lightened flywheel (42 lbs). Everything else was left original. Best part is that everything looks stock. I expect around 50+ horse power. Should do 55 easy. My goal is t...

Looking for one rain gutter

Getting ready to install top and found myself missing the half round cover on one of my original rain gutters. I am doing a rusty restore so new gutters will not work for me. If you have old half round cover or an entire gutter for sale please give me a call or text - Bob 269-423-2637

Re: Anybody know the story on this Express?

I was inspired by this truck when I seen it on eBay the first time. I thought it sold for 18k. I have decided to keep my express truck totally rust as this one is. I will have new wood in my bed and correct rear fenders.

Re: Top wood replacement

All rust but mostly solid. Been cleaning gas tank today. Removed it and scraped some rust loose from bottom. Vacuumed and poured in 35 1/2 nuts. I have been rolling and sloshing all day. Do it for a couple of minutes then rest while doing something else. Cleaning up pretty good. Will continue till t...
